    Thank You! It feels so good to FEEL GOOD again.
  2. Wow, look at you! You look ah-maz-ing! Thanks for checking in. I'm doing really well. No regrets whatsoever other than waiting so long to do this in the first place. I'm actually starting to recognize the person in the mirror staring back at me. My biggest problems at this phase are getting all the daily fluids in and dealing with the texture of my hair. My hair is awful, so I wear it up. I'm going to talk to my hairdresser next week about a keratin treatment. I'm hopeful it will help. Right now, it feels and looks like...well...um...long, blonde, pubes. Sorry, TMI! :-) How are you doing?

    Hi Lisa! :-D

    I'm doing well for the most part. I am still having trouble making my water intake a habit... and I frequently don't get in enough calories so I am having quite a bit of hair loss.

    I'm down 70 lbs since surgery, 87.5 since my preop diet. Went from a 3x bottom to a 1x (26 - 16) and from a 2x to a L on top (22 - 12). It feels pretty great, despite the absolute floppiness of my body now. Lol

    How are you doing?

    Wow Lisa! amazing photos! the difference is huge especially in your mid section!! and it's just in a few months! more to come! I hope you do feel much better now! take care!
  10. I guess maybe that's a little bit of a help. How horrible, though. I believe I would have been terrified. I'm sure you were too.

    I finally have a date (again) for my surgery, though it may get pushed. In December my PCP said I might have an ulcer. I stayed the course of treatment. But, recently I decided to go for a EGD because it didn't seem to be getting better. Yesterday I had that scope. I don't know much yet except that they found congested gastric mucosa of the fundus and proximal body. They took a bunch of biopsies during the scope. I hope it all comes out ok and I can have the surgery in May. It was supposed to be done in Jan, but something always seems to come up. I hope you are feeling great now and have tons of energy to boot!

  13. Hi Lisa, I haven't been on the forum for quite some time, but I just got my surgery date so I thought it was time to get back to it and update my info. That's when I learned about your nightmare. I am so, so very sorry! I hope you are doing better now. I know you were a self-pay, but did insurance help at all with your complications? I hope your nightmare is over.

About Lisa73me
Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have had a gastric sleeve.
I have struggled with my weight my whole life, but in recent years I have gotten pretty heavy. I have lost a lot of weight twice in the last 3 years, only to gain to all back. I need a permanent solution. I never have been one to snack a lot, but when I sit down to a meal, I can put it away. I think my biggest problem is portion control. I hope surgery fixes that...
